Adams into BDO semis for 10th time
10 Jan 2015 09:09
Martin Adams overcame Ross Montgomery to reach the final four of the BDO World Championship for the 10th time in his career.
-
The 58-year-old shut down the Scot 5-1 at at Lakeside to reach his first semi-final at the tournament since he picked up his last title four years ago.
-
Montgomery, who breezed past Scott Waites 4-0 on Thursday, forced a deciding leg in the fourth set but he missed his chance to level the match and from there Adams closed it out.
-
Speaking to BBC Sport, Adams explained how he has regained his form: "I've done it myself with a lot of hard work and a lot of practice over a period of about two years."
-
He added: "Every afternoon at half past two, if I'm not doing exhibitions or at tournaments, I'm on the practice board for two hours."
-
Awaiting Adams in the last four is Glen Durrant, after he powered past Darryl Fitton 5-2, thanks largely to a devastating display in the third, fourth and fifth sets that restricted Fitton to winning only two legs in total.
-
The other semi-final sees Jeff Smith and Scott Mitchell going head to head after they came through their respective quarters on Friday.
-
Like Adams, Canadian qualifier Smith only dropped one set on his way to a 5-1 victory over Robbie Green, while Mitchell trumped Brian Dawson 5-2 with a display which featured some devastating finishing, including six ton-plus checkouts.
